of 20% of iran's call for sanctions, the united states there is a problem that iran to want to negotiate for a position which has changed -- you talk about 20% -- they want sanctions to be lifted with them stopping 20%. the question is they are enriching. we said their right to enrich should be recognized and that would negate all the u.n. sanctions. the nuclear issue stems from u.n. security council issues. within the margins of this issue, there is room to change going forward. i think we may find that it is constrained by the fact that israel is still there. israel is not about to let go of its concerns. i think there has been a lack of dialogue. it would be good if the two sides could sit down together. they could start with this temple and hold discussions and feel of how each side can help each other. my advice for the u.s. diplomats would be to sit with them and say we are not going to talk about the nuclear issue, how is your family. there is the fact of just discussing. on the other side, there is the problem that it is not clear what the endgame is. we're calling on iran to sus
. but the u.s. has declined. the united states has never proposed iran a comprehensive package. never. my point is this. first, try at least once. i real hi don't care in iran whether we have a conservative or moderate president or reformist because i have been working for 16 years under the presidents and i know we did our utmost to get a good -- to bring the relation, to improve the relation with the u.s. and the u.s. always declined. therefore, this is the same policy during ahmadinajed. but they have better justification during ahmadinajed. they use the holocaust and all the these rhetorics which is very harmful for iran's national interests. my suggestion is this. any u.s. administration i hope after the election -- because we cannot talk before the election -- propose at least once after 33 years a comprehensive package including terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, peace process, israel, human rights, democracy, all these major points for the u.s. and iranians also they have their own shopping list. and the u.s. also should be prepared to address iranian concerns. if it failed,

are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the

the united states. you must be tired. you sit, i'll talk. you listen. and so i did. then he said this. and he repeated it again and again. where is american leadership? we need american leadership. where is american leadership? then he'd talk about a region of the world and what was happening in that region. then he'd say where is american leadership? then he'd go to another region and talk about the challenges there. where is american leadership? the world has always looked to us as the shining city on the hill. that light looks dimmer. we keep kicking the challenges down the road and hope someone else will deal with it. that time is now ours. this is the greatest generation that left us this nation so prosperous and so free. now it's our turn. they've held the torch alost for the whole world to see. a torch of freedom, opportunity and hope. they're getting fewer and further between, the greatest generation. they can't hold it quite as high as they used to. it's our turn to grab the torch. when i became president -- [ cheers and applause ] -- we're going to do what we have to do, we're going
, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birt

"outfront" tonight, iran slaps israel. iran's president ahmadinejad is on american soil tonight and i was with him today. he was smiling, making jokes, very relaxed as he took questions from a group of journalists at his hotel. he kept asking us to exchange views. not just ask questions. but we had a lot of questions to ask. and in his answers, he called israel's threats to attack iran's nuclear program, in his words, a blip on the radar screen. >> translator: principally, we do not take seriously what the scientists say in threatening iran. >> so it's hard to imagine a more clear bow off than that, right? until you hear this. >> translator: they have been ok pieing those territories for the last 60 to 70 years with the support of force of the westerners. they have no roots there in history. iran is a vast, great country that has been as such for thousands of years
at the u.n. as he usually does. at a meeting monday, mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the united states of backing what he called a fake regime in israel. that led to a walkout by israel's u.n. ambassador. >> also monday, a wide ranging interview with us, we ask him about the threat of an attack on iran's nuclear facilities and how his country would respond. >> would you retaliate against the united states if there's an attack by israel on iran? >> translator: well, by the principle of it, i don't take the zionist threats serious. >> they're bluffing? >> translator: we don't even take them into account. i would like to ask you, who's subservient to whom? the united states government to the zionists? which one is which? >> for a country ru you saw you don't take into account, you spend a lot of time talking about them, including here today in new york. you said israel has no historical roots in the middle east and the white house has called that statement by you disgusting, offensive, and outrageous. would you like to apologize? >> translator: do they have roots? if they have roots, then
judiciary led the way to social equality, racial equality in the united states. and it was not just the appointments of earl warren and oral brennan to the supreme court, but the host of liberal republicans such as the president appointed himself like albert title of georgia and john of louisiana. these were the judges that were in the vanguard of the civil rights struggle. but the most significant judicial appointment i think that eisenhower made at that time is that of john marshall hall of the great conservative justice and just after the landmark decision in brown v board of education. shortly after that decision came down, justice robert jackson died leaving the vacancy on the court, and at that point roosevelt turned to the grandson of the great marshall harlem who would be the only dissenter in percy versus ferguson and 1896, the case legalized segregation by appointing the great dissenter eisenhower was making a statement he could not have adored. he said eisenhower was going to enforce it. when the segregation attempted to swap the integration in little rock eisenhower sent
. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. those are green plants are visible. they are still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce a record detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe under a year. maybe only a few months. the detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of the classroom. it might be difficult to find and target that workshop
the united states, my new book that you mentioned, here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the lack of freedom talks about treatise he's pushing which is taxing american oil wells offshore, billionaires throughout the world and using that money to go to the third world. going past foreign aid and actually taxing the united states internationally to give the money to the third world. that was at the core of the rio conference. and these schemes are floating around heavily and they lie at the core of obama's view. look, when two-thirds -- in 1980 one-third of our federal budget went to cash transfers to other people, money that we paid people. now it's two-thirds. two-thirds of it goes there. so when you have one percent of the population paying 42% of the tax and two-thirds of the tax going to other people, what do you call that but income redistribution? >> well, i hear you talk about it and others talk about it, you do did of it with a level of certainty and conviction, and i think is it resonating with the voters? there's a new nbc news wall street journal poll, in io
from fox this thursday night. the united states is pulling more staffers from our embassy at libya for security reasons. that is what officials are telling fox news. they say the move is temporary and they hope to send the workers back next week. the u.s. cut the staff to emergency levels after the attack on the consul in benghazi. now fox news has learned that officials are calling it a attae first 24 hours, not one but two sources say investigators suspected a group with ties to al-qaeda was to blame. a few days later obama officials were still telling a different story. >> the best assessment we have today that in fact this was not a preplanned attack. that what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the day after that comment. jay carney said it is i think self-evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. he says the president agrees. quote, it is certainly the case it is in o

on american aircraft over the united states. i don't think that's going -- nothing's going to stop that happening. >> reporter: the u.s. government is not even considering allowing passengers to use cell phones on planes. but officials are looking into whether passengers can use devices like these to read or listen to music during takeoff and landing. american airlines pilots just started using ipads in the cockpit throughout the flight to access maps and other information. flight attendants will also get tablets to use inside the cabin. and consumer advocates say allowing passengers to do the same during takeoff and landing would only be fair. >> it kind of bothers consumers and passengers not so much the fact that they can't make cell phone calls, just the fact they can't use any electronic devices. >> reporter: and he worries one day on domestic u.s. flights dealing with a loud neighbor talking on a mobile phone may be the next in-flight inconvenience. sandra endo, cnn, washington. >> polls show mitt romney's support is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about
for this is the books are conceived as a history of the united states sort of as told through biographies and i was looking for a woman subject for one of these and in fact i found one but my publisher wouldn't let me do it. can you guess what woman i was looking for and found? eleanor roosevelt. i mean, just the fact that it's a very short list of women who played a large role in american public life on whom i can hang a tale of four or five decades of american history. women have had of course their roles in private life but it is in the nature of private life it usually doesn't survive in the historical record. why did people start saving the letters of eleanor roosevelt? because she was important. do your correspondence save your letters that you write to them and then do they deposit them in the local historical society? well, maybe, and if they do you will become, can i use my words adviseably, here, you will become literally immortal. you will become immortal in letters because future historians will find those letters. they will say ah, that is what life was like at the beginning of the

. what he really means to say is the united states is going to cut and run in afghanistan by 2014, whether you like it or not, and if the war continues, which it will, it will be without us. same thing's happened in iraq. he said the war was ended in iraq. no, it wasn't. it was not certainly ended for iraqis. people are getting killed every week, but the americans pulled out. if we end up with an israeli strike on iran, there's going to be a total mess in the persian gulf. >> bill: in talking about the u.n., he said the u.s. will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. i'm not sure what he means by "what we must do." i don't expect him to set it out in detail, but he said. >> look, since he refuses to meet with netanyahu, it's a little hard to figure out what he thinks what we must do is. my first meeting as speaker, before i was even sworn in, was in december of 1994 with the prime minister of israel. he was worried about iran. he said i'm not worried about the israelis. we'll manage that. he said we can't cope withan. that's 1984. the foundation have bee
